Los Angeles: Actress Mischa Barton has split from her boyfriend, British DJ Ali Live, due to extensive media intrusion.

The 24-year-old is said to have moved back to Los Angeles from London due to their break-up, reports showbizspy.com.

"He wasn`t ready to be a celebrity. He was expecting they`d get some attention, but he never imagined it would be as bad as it was. He values his privacy and couldn`t deal with photographers following them around or the nasty comments people would make on blogs. So he finally told Mischa it would be better if they stopped dating," said a source.

However, there is a possibility that the former ‘O.C.’ star might reconcile with him.

"She`s trying to forget about him and move on, but they might give it another go. Mischa has always had on-off relationships. But she`s not reaching out to him at this stage," the source added.

The couple went public about their short relationship in July.
